Tofu Skillet with Corn Tortillas & Salsa

Tofu Skillet with Corn Tortillas & Salsa
Original Recipe by Miss Jolie Ann

Hello Readers,

This recipe is oh so delicious, quick & easy and inexpensive. It's also totally vegan without the optional toppings. So it's an all around winner! When I used to live in the Mission District I became so totally addicted to really good fresh corn tortillas. I could live off of corn tortillas sauteed in butter. Oh my God. But, I digress. For this recipe I love using the Trader Joe's brand "high protein" tofu. It has a great texture and taste. It goes above & beyond most extra firm type tofu in holding up it's shape in recipes. Enjoy!

In Health,
